Kill Sugar Cravings with Essential Oils

Imagine if you can kill a craving in 3 mins flat!

In fact yesterday after this interview I had a sugar craving; I walked to my cupboard and opened it up looking to see what I have in there to feed it…and then out of the side of my eye I see my lemon essential oil.

Believe me when I say this that I sooo wanted the chocolate that is hidden at the top of my cupboard BUT  I thought well let’s see if Dr Mariza is right and lemon essential oil can cure my sugar craving.

So I placed a drop on my tongue, closed the cupboard door and walked off.

Only now writing this did I realise Holly sh*t it worked…even better I totally forgot I wanted the chocolate. No mental battle…NOTHING! 

Even though I have used essential oils for many years but not to cure a sugar cravings.

I noticed that there has been a big BUZZ around essential oils lately; so I decided to bring Dr Marzia Synders on the show today to give us the lowdown on essential oils (she shares some crazy mind blowing stuff!!!!)

Today we lift the lid on the  whole essential oils world; how they work, why they work.

I stumbled across essential oils 17 years ago; I had the weakest lungs, I continually suffered from asthma with continual bouts of bronchitis a couple of times a year. I was introduced to the powers of peppermint oil and since that day I never used an asthma spray or had bronchitis ever again….NEVER!

Dr Mariza Synders  shares how our stress hormones are linked to our sugar cravings and how we can vanish them in under 3 mins flat simply by sniffing a peppermint or lemon oil.

Essential oils are powerful organic constitutes that speak directly to our molecules, hence the positive immediate impact & effects.

  • Women trying to be everything to everyone; and why our adrenals are getting out of whack.

Do you feel there is an invisible prison that is holding you back from your next level?

You know cognitively that you can do it but something is holding you back from your ultimate level of success.

What you could be suffering from is Patriarchy Stress Disorder, coined by Dr Valerie (who I have to say has the most sensual energy and voice I have ever interviewed on the show)

Dr Valerie shares how Patriarchy Stress Disorder is very common in high achieving women. A disorder the holds you back from you evolving into a more authentic way of living, working and being.

For many women this invisible lock could be from a traumatic experience from your childhood ( now a heads up, when we hear “trauma” most people think it’s something big, like a life-threatening event…nope think again).

We also uncover how this block could of been carried at a cellular level in our DNA. Yes..we go there in this interview (some seriously freaky cool shit right there!)

Dr Valerie shares a gift to the listeners, which is a  3 minutes simple technique that helps unlock the stress and regulates your nervous system back into peace ( voila that quick).

So why is this important for you to know?

Many women don’t even realise that they are blocking their true authenticity, which can be easily fixed once they become conscious of their triggers.

Check out what Dr Valerie shares in this the interview:

  • What Patriarchy Stress Disorder is
  • What are some of the PSD symptoms a woman can recognise?
  • The layers of healing to allow the breakthrough to start healing.
  • Uncovering the pieces that unlocks your inner game to get to your next level that is more authentic

Exciting News! [+ My before & after photos]

The Herpreneur Lifestyle Show launches TODAY!!!!!!!!

To say, contracting meningitis last year rocked my world, would be an understatement!

I ended up in the disease ward of a third world hospital…

Let’s just say the conditions were something you would see in a movie.

It had me determined to get home as quick as possible.

After 3 weeks of hell, I finally left…though it was without permission and under an enforced waiver.

When I got back home, something about myself had changed…

I felt different.

I’d had lost the feeling that I lived with for the past 5 years.

I lost my addiction and drive to work like a Trojan.

It was a strong undeniable feeling that I couldn’t shake.

“I don’t want to go back and continue working the way I was!” I said crying to my husband.

I hadn’t realise the ‘heavy daily pressure’ I had placed on my self to ‘achieve’.

Not to mention how much the stress was playing major havoc on my weight.

Embarrassingly, I put on 15kgs in only 4 years

Even though I had continued exercising 3-5 days a week over this time, as much as I tried, I kept packing more weight on.

I went from a 6 pack of abs, to a one pack of flab.

At times when I looked in the mirror I didn’t recognise my body, disbelief that it belonged to me.

I knew the way I had been working…was just NOT WORKING!

Not for my level of happiness, nor fulfilment and definitely not for my health.

There was no way I was going back to that stressful lifestyle again!

So the past 5 months turned into some deep soul searching…

As a result, 2 things have changed dramatically:

  1. I have been teaching myself to work differently, more in my feminine.

2.   I have been tweaking my health regime …it’s sooooo much easier than before with sooooo much better results.

Boom…I’ve easily dropped that unwanted 15kgs in weight.

Check out my before and after photo below (cringe factor…there’s nothing like a good before photo in daggy undies, that you then have to keep wearing to make an honest after pic. Now that I have these snaps, they’re in the bin!)

It’s not just the weight loss though, I’m finally feeling fulfilled again!

Fulfilled without the crazy adrenaline addiction of success and –

Fulfilled without the high pressure and ego-focused mind.

I think there is an epidemic for women in the way we currently work.

I think we place too much pressure on ourselves.

Partly because we unconsciously work in a masculine business framework, but we are also depleting our self-esteem with poor health choices. As a result of trying to numb our stress.

I recently conducted a survey and the results so far show that, 51% of the women use alcohol to manage their stress –

46% use food.

We are drinking and eating our way out of stress (anxiety, depression, adrenaline and fatigue are a few types of stress) and it’s killing our self-esteem in the long run!

It’s not sustainable.

It’s imperative that we evolve now.

The question is, what will be your evolution?

To greatness?

Or to a more tired, more stressed, overweight and overworked “snappy bitch” to your loved ones by the end of the day?

I say “snappy bitch,” only because that was the general consensus that many of you  shared in the survey under ‘other comments’.

I feel it’s my mission to speak up

I’ve thought long and hard about pimping my pain to help other women

Yes, I feel vulnerable about the article!

BUT it’s my truth and I know there’s many other women in business who are not at their highest level of happiness,

who are chasing fulfilment and success BUT getting hammered along the way.

Physically and emotionally.

Does any of this this resonate with you?

Do crave a more calmer version of you, crave more fulfilment in your life and work, more happiness and seriously want to meet the healthier version of you…again?

If so, I’m inviting you to plug into something that is going to help you evolve into the next better version of you.

I’d love for you to come join me and experts from all around the world to specially help you, as a woman in business, live a more fulfilling life, while you continue to build your business empire.

It’s called the Herpreneur Lifestyle Show!

A podcast show dedicated to women in business to live a fuller and healthier life.

I hope it help creates the shift in your life that you need to up-level to.

Health, wealth & happiness,

Annette

P.S. It has taken a lot of courage to share with you my ‘before’ photo, but I do in hope it will inspire you to make a change in the area of your life that needs to be course corrected the most.
